Kapino (Waldenburg), Kreis Neustadt, West Prussia
The area surrounding the town ofNeustadt (Wejherowo) was also a source of many Remus family records. These Remus family members migrated to MI and the village of Remus, MI was named after them. The complete set of Remus family records can be found on the Bohlschau webpage.
For a while several of the family members worked on themanorial farm in Kapino (Waldenburg). Remnants of the manorial farm (picture 1) and barns (picture 2) still exist but there are also many modern buildings (picture 3). Here are pictures:
The Remus family was also on manorial farms in the villages ofGora, Bohlschau, Nanitz, and Petzau (see Nanitz).. Later some Remus family members moved directly to MI while others spent time in Wilhelmshuld (Kolonia) prior to immigrating.
